    Just finished plating these Euro cuttlas grilles. They are used grilles that I had in the garage. I spent several hours cleaning and polishing them before starting the plating process. The one on the left (driver side) was more worn and came out a little dull .But other than that, they look good.

    If it is chrome over plastic then yeah. These grilles are plastic. As long as the chrome is is in good condition is all that matters. The gold is gonna look as good as the chrome does. Thats why one of the grilles is a little dull. The chrome was worn and dull so thats how the gold came out. But as long as your parts are perfect and shiny, Then its all good.

    Just remember that they have to be chrome first and in good shape. If they are chromed then $150 a pair upper or lower

    I havn't had a chance to do any stainless yet. From what I've heard it takes more gold to cover it and it doesnt come out as nice as chrome parts. I'm sure if the stainless parts are buffed to a real good mirror finsh. Then they will look fine. Just make sure the parts are buffed first. I need to order a special chemical to activate stainless though (been lagging on that) as far as pricing, set of 4 fender trim $150, Large rockers $300 full set.

    Lets see the other stuff ,Headlight bezels $75 pair, Taillight housings $100 pair, Grill shell $75, bumper gaurds $50 pair
